Project Pulse is a nationwide series of presentations to introduce high school students or interested parties to the world of Health Sciences. For people interested in the field, I will be a keynote speaker at their Vancouver event Saturday, January 30th, followed by talks by talented students and professionals. If you go to their Project Pulse website, there are more details about the event and ticket prices you can buy online. Plus bios of all the speakers and the schedule for the day. Here's the blurb on my presentation:
With images of her art over the span of her illness, Sandra will describe her experience of schizophrenia, the elements that aided her recovery, the holistic model of care, and the role of health professionals including Mental Health and Addictions Case Managers, Occupational Therapists and Psychiatrists. If you'd like to learn more about schizophrenia and how you can make a difference in the field of mental health, this presentation is for you.
